We've got an Aiwa HV-FX7800K. It's been fine for however long we've had it. Must be a year or 2. Anyway, today when we tried to use it we're getting sound okay, but just noise on the screen. The auto-tracking isn't making it better and manual tracking didn't help either. It probably gets average use. My daughter will watch a film several times a week and we tape things now and then. Our old Hitachi had to go because the head was knackered. I'm hoping this hasn't happened again. Any suggestions?
